«Praulins: Ode Et Amo 2. 0»
|Ugis Praulinš||Odi et Amo 2.0.|
Boys choir meets rock band, overtone singing meets beatboxing, classic meets pop.
The oratorio for choir and rock band combines the traditional timbre of a boys’ choir with modern sounds familiar from pop and rock. The oratorio was first composed in the 1990s; in 2018 the composer Uģis Prauliņš, the choir, and several guest performers have collaborated to bring new life to Odi et Amo in this updated, modernized version 2.0: a fascinating and stirring mix that breaks the boundaries between pop and classical music. Anna-Maria Hefele, a ‘pop star’ of overtone singing, features prominently in this fresh version of the oratorio as do Yared Dibaba (rap), Stefan Kuchel (saxophone & EWI) and Indra Tedjasukmana (beatboxing).
